Lori's Quilt

Several member of the Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild got together to create this beautiful king size quilt for Lori's big 50 birthday celebration.  Lori is one of the kindest and most gerenerous people I know, so I was delighted to contribute my part of long arm quilting to this very special gift for this very special person.  The quilt is made up of blue and turquoise mosaic style blocks with Robert Kaufman Essex Linen (flax color) as the "mortar" between the bricks and also as sashing between the blocks.   I used a pebble pattern thoughout the whole quilt on all of the areas pieced with the Essex Linen, but I chose to leave all of the "bricks" in the mosaic block free of quilting.  

The pictures I show here are only a small section of the front and of the back of the quilt.
